“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Houston, We Have A Problem!

You know what they say about the best laid plans...  So, um, yeah.  It was a no-go for running this morning.  I made it as far as putting on running clothes, getting on the treadmill, and doing my warm-up walk.  30 seconds into the first run interval, I realized: 5am on a Monday?!?  It just wasn't happening. So I switched off the treadmill, and turned instead to my upper body/core strength training plan and did a circuit of weight training.

So, the plan to switch to Monday/Wednesday running is probably going to get scrapped.  I'm going to use the rest of the week to try to figure out a new approach, but for now, I'm back to Tuesday/Thursday runs.

However, I got in some strength training today, so it's hard to complain about that!  And I liked doing a little bit of cardio beforehand - I think I'll definitely incorporate 10-15 minutes of walking prior to pulling out the weights from now on!

Today's stats:
  • 10 min. warm-up walk
  • 35 min. upper body/core strength training
